comment “Locked” and “secure” icons in one interface
+1 for different terminology. Depending on the reason for "locking" an item, something like "no edits" or "in use" or "in progress" might be more clear (or at least starting points for a word search).

comment Visually showing that a textbox contains text longer than its width?
What's wrong with the default behavior where the additional text is visually cut off? Simply make the text box 8 or 9 characters in length so there's almost always white space at the end of the box.

comment Should I display timezone if the user is not in the same location as the event?
Not a single one of your examples shows a UTC time. :-) I don't dismiss that UTC is a well-established standard, I just contend that it is absolutely useless from a usability perspective. Average Joe doesn't (and shouldn't) deal with UTC times in their daily life. There's no reason to push timezone translation onto the user. Even without automated detection, a user-controlled preference in the app's profile/settings page can easily avoid this nonsense.

comment Menu restructing quandary
Whatever you do, please add a delay before hiding the top menu. It's incredibly annoying to have the menu close instantly when you accidentally mouse out <_<

UTC time has no value for me or the majority of users. Unless you live in Western Europe, the required translation to local time is difficult and completely unnecessary.

comment Update vs Modify vs Change - Create vs Add - Delete vs Remove
I prefer New for creation, and Edit paired with Save for modification. If it's unclear what is being created/modified, include the object (New User vs. New Group).

comment Why do video sites let users choose the resolution?
I can definitely tell a difference between 720p scaled and 360p original size (or whatever). If nothing else, the audio quality is different. I frequently "watch" YouTube videos in a background tab only for the audio.

comment What is the best wording to describe an item that is selected to be more important?
"Watch" and "follow" imply that the item changes. If the quote is static, this doesn't make sense.

comment Best Practice For Opening PDFs in a Datatable/Table?
I find the behavior you suggest misleading. First, I would expect the same behavior whether I clicked on the icon or the text. Second, the meaning of such an icon is convoluted. It is commonly used to disclaim responsibility for external links (for example, Wikipedia and hhs.gov/web/policies/webstandards/disclaimer.html).
